Very Good softcover. Clean covers and spine; faded at front cover fore edge; minor dust spotting on text block top edge; tightly bound; bright, clean interior. Cf, OCLC #476346500. 16mo, 448 pp., Moscow: Progress Publishers, 1981, Wiley. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 320 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.2in. x 1.3in.On the same day that reporter Jeffrey Kaye visited the Tondo hospital in northwest Manila, members of an employees association wearing hospital uniforms rallied in the outside courtyard demanding pay raises. The nurses at the hospital took home about 261 a month, while in the United States, nurses earn, on average, more than fifteen times that rate of pay. No wonder so many of them leave the Philippines. Between 2000 and 2007, nearly 78, 000 qualified nurses left the Philippines to work abroad, but theres more to it than the pull of better wages: each year the Philippine president hands out Bagong Bayani (modern-day heroes) awards to the countrys outstanding and exemplary migrant workers. Migrant labor accounts for the Philippines second largest source of export revenueafter electronicsand they ship out nurses like another country might export textiles. In 2008, the Philippines was one of the top ranking destination countries for remittances, alongside India (45 billion), China (34. 5 billion), and Mexico (26. 2 billion). Nurses in the Philippines, farmers in Senegal, Dominican factory workers in rural Pennsylvania, even Indian software engineers working in Californiaall are pieces of a larger system Kaye calls coyote capitalism. Coyote capitalism is the ideapracticed by many businesses and governmentsthat people, like other natural resources, are supplies to be shifted around to meet demand. Workers are pushed out, pulled in, and put on the line without consideration of the consequences for economies, communities, or individuals. With a fresh take on a controversial topic, Moving Millions: Knocks down myth after myth about why immigrants come to America and what role they play in the economyChallenges the view that immigrants themselves motivate immigration, rather than the policies of businesses and governments in both rich and poor nationsFinds surprising connections between globalization, economic growth and the convoluted immigration debates taking place in America and other industrialized countriesJeffrey Kaye is a freelance journalist and special correspondent for the PBS NewsHour for whom he has reported since 1984, covering immigration, housing, health care, urban politics, and other issuesWhat does it all add up to Americas approach to importing workers looks from the outside like a patchwork of unnecessary laws and regulations, but the machinery of immigration is actually part of a larger, global system that satisfies the needs of businesses and governments, often at the expense of workers in every nation. Drawing on Jeffrey Kayes travels to places including Mexico, the U. K. , the United Arab Emirates, the Philippines, Poland, and Senegal, this book, a healthy alternative to the obsession with migrants legal status, exposes the dark side of globalization and the complicity of businesses and governments to benefit from the migration of millions of workers.

"Impeccably documented, compulsively readable, this is the first full-length biography of the most powerful and coldblooded of Hitler's lieutenants. Before his suicide in 1945 Himmler had ruled the SS and Gestapo, directed the death camps in Poland, headed German intelligence services, and run the slave-labor system in the Reich. He also was responsible for pseudo-medical experiments in the death camps. Delving into the family background and upbringing of this terrible yet strangely ordinary man, Padfield analyzes the master-race theories that inspired Himmler and comes impressively close to explaining how a priggish, idealistic Bavarian boy turned into history's most ruthless slaughterer. Buttressed with excerpts from diaries, letters and speeches, the author examines each phase of Himmler's life in detail. Padfield describes, for instance, how Himmler expanded Hitler's personal bodyguard (the original SS) into an all-embracing empire within the Nazi state used to terrorize party hierarchy as well as occupied Europe. The book sheds light on Himmler's 11th-hour attempt to make a separate peace with the Allies, and on the details of his final hours.

Dimensions: 8.8in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.Rossiya: Voices from the Brezhnev Era is a poignant sketch of the Soviet Union prior to its disastrous invasion of Afghanistan. It is also a bittersweet tale of an American coming to terms with his Russian roots. One summer in the late 1970s, author Alex Shishin travels through the USSR on the Rossiya, the Trans-Siberian train that runs between Vladivostok and Moscow and that twice carries him across the vastness of Siberia. Fluent in Russian, the young Russian American converses with countless citizens from every strata of Soviet society. An extended side trip to Poland brings him in contact with a simmering revolution. Everywhere he goes, Shishin meets ordinary people imbued with a generosity that transcends all political systems and times. Alexs readiness to accept people without judging them enables his fellow travelers to open up to him and talk about things that affect their lives: politics, economics, their harsh memories of war, and their deep desires for peace. His vivid portraits of the people he meets make you feel as if you are sitting together with him, hearing the voices, enjoying the food and drinks, and feeling the motion of the train traveling over the tracks . This is a moving account of the writers pilgrimage to know himself through human encounters. -Peter Sano, author of 1, 000 Days in Siberia: The Odyssey of a Japanese-American POW This item ships from multiple locations.
